SEA ISLE, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — If you spent your holiday weekend down the shore, you got to enjoy some miraculous weather. 

Too often on Memorial Day weekend down the shore, “It’s usually cold, rainy, everyone is in sweatshirts, bundled up," said Dan Allerton, who was at the shore for the weekend. 

But Allerton and everyone else who made the trip to the beach were in for a treat.

“It’s perfect. If we can get this all summer we would, it’s absolutely perfect," he said. 

"Perfect” is the word everyone KYW Newsradio spoke with used to describe the holiday weekend weather, including Mary Shields.

“It was a perfect weekend, beautiful blue skies, lots of sun," she said. 

She couldn’t remember a time the weather was this nice all three days of the holiday weekend.

Shields is down the shore for the summer, and she even teased her kids at one point for having to leave the beach to drive home. 

Darby Doyle didn’t have any complaints about the weather either.

“It’s been incredible and it’s been perfect. The best (Memorial Day) weekend in about 20 years,” Doyle said. 

And he’s hoping this is a sign of what’s to come this summer.

“It starts off great, you’re looking forward to the next 100 days of summer. It’s fantastic. You’re not inside, you’re outside in the fresh air and down the shore is like make believe, anything goes,” he added.
